Romano-Gallic Empire Victorinus, AD 269-271 XF
In the fall of 2013, a novice treasure hunter unearthed the discovery of a lifetime. Buried in a filed in South Petherton, England was a hoard of ancient Roman coins dating from the third century! This valuable collection, which includes issues from Gallienus, Postumus, and Victorinus, was examined by the British Museum (in accordance with the UK Treasure Act) and then released to private collectors. The Crisis of the Third Century (AD 235-284) was a period in which the great Roman Empire nearly collapsed. By AD 268, the empire had split into three competing states: the Gallic Empire (Gaul, Britannia and Hispania), the Palmyrene Empire (Syria, centered Roman Empire proper. Because of its distance from the capital city of Rome, and its protection via the English Channel, Britannia, or Roman Britain, was a Gallic stronghold during the otherwise third century. Some believe this hoard was buried by an officer garrisoned in Britannia after the defeat of the last Gallic Emperor to Aurelian in AD 274.
